    Do you assume that other experienced players aren't helping out new players like you are too? It's a big community, there's plenty of room for parallel efforts.

    I think the thread could do with a bit of a timeout so everyone can cool down.

    1. One thread per group. 2. One pinned general-discussion thread for the merits of groups. 3. Posts in threads should relate to the group only. Posts attacking the group concept generally or trying to bash the efforts of the group will be moderated. 4. Do not bump threads for the sake of bumping them. Posts/content doing as such will be removed. 5. Groups may not be advertised via private messages. This is considered spamming.

    Why not scale crew payouts according to min(MC crew member's total assets, Helm's total assets) / (Helm's​ total assets)?

    Gtreat stuff. This is something I have looked in to but havent had time to dig in deep. Will help where I can. I have read somewhere else that retreat may close black markets but this has not been tested. Also there are a number of stations that had black markets which have been closed down but not due to changes in the controling faction, power play or seemingly UA bombing Further Fdev often opens blackmarkets in systems at station where they should not be available e.g Lidpar. I do not know if they remain afterwards. EDIT - Antal Control systems should have 0 black markets

    Sounds good. Apart from maybe a little icon showing your faction what else could it possibly mean and how would it be different to a power pledge?

    Well argued, Lightspeed. It drags the whole game down. And these 'friends who will only buy the game if they can earn like an endgame player via Multicrew' will tire of it and leave again promptly, probably posting negative reviews on steam about how shallow the game is. Now consider whether the situation would be improved if the multicrew payouts were scaled by your total assets in game instead of combat rank :D:D:D.

    Serious proposal time - banish them to the left UI panel alongside bounty amount, and send our own ship name to the right UI panel. https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/340031-Feedback-Rethink-ship-name-placement-UI-UX-in-cockpit I love ship naming and don't really care how silly people get with them unless it's offensive, abhorrent or illegal, but I don't need to see them in my face while I'm flying the ship (as long as I'm not on a mission to find the ISS Needle-in-a-Haystack).

    Have you got any custom command line switches set for the executable on the desktop shortcut? ISTR there was something like a /VR or /HMD switch to tell the game to start in 2D mode.

    Just posted these in the Feedback/Suggestions forum but then realised they might get seen to have an effect for 2.3 here: Feedback: Rethink ship name placement UI/UX in cockpit The location of ship names in the main Forward view needs to be reexamined: Marked up image showing ship naming in 2.3beta5: http://i.imgur.com/z0n6mm9.jpg 1) Own ship's name (circled top left above Info panel) Why is this here, except as an obvious reminder that 2.3 adds ship naming? We are unlikely to forget our own ship's name. Ship name plays no role in moment to moment gameplay. The cockpit UI already has a location for non-urgent data about our own ship - the Functions tab of the right cockpit UI panel, and there is the name and ship ID again.

    Actually, your signature made me think of the old BBC test card. Waiting for a match of CQC is like watching that while waiting for the BBC to begin broadcasting kids TV in the afternoon.

    The target/location information given in the main forward UI can be streamlined. It presents some first order information which is not immediately useful: target vessel's faction and the polity of the current location. Both of which can be used to determine whether attacking a target makes sense, but they require additional thought to use. 1) For location information, the only use is "Do I want to get a bounty from XYZ Interstellar for doing this?" which doesn't influence gameplay much. The local polity/ruling faction does little to influence how the game is played moment to moment. Whether we are currently Wanted or carrying illegal goods (the useful information derived from the combination of local polity, legal state and cargo) is already shown above the right hand info box. A player playing the background simulation will know which faction is in control of in a given system, and can check the right hand UI panel if unsure. A more immediately useful piece of information would be whether the...

The cockpit UI already has a location for non-urgent data about our own ship - the Functions tab of the right cockpit UI panel, and there is the name and ship ID again. When joining a multicrew session we might confuse it with our own ship? Unlikely, and this UI is not visible when a player is actively flying a SLF or using the gunner view anyway. Many proposed UI elements (direction of travel vector, arrow to targetted contact) have been rejected with the rationale that FD want to keep Elite's HUD uncluttered, but this name seems to have been added anyway.

    wstephenson replied to a thread [Beta 4] Solar flares in 2.3 Beta Bug Reports
    It's how flames, explosions, smoke, UI etc have been done in almost every 3d game since textured 3D became a thing - put a 2D (animated) texture on a 'billboard' 3d surface and make sure it always faces the virtual camera and points up.

    Another effectiveness improvement would be to allow out-of-fire-arc turrets to be controlled by the AI to shoot at will at other hostiles.

    This is exactly what the game does if you click 'BUY GAME EXTRAS' from inside the livery panel - there is no reason it couldn't call whatever OS API this uses just with a file:// url pointing to the current Logs directory.
